Kitty McCaffrey is the promising author of the book, Raising Charlie: A Self Help Book for Single Mothers. It’s the story of a single career mom trying to do her best job at home caring for her two little sons while keeping her career afloat on the job. Like every mother who is left with awesome job of “going it alone”, she is tired most of the time, scared all of the time, and overwhelmed by each and every day’s surprises. This is also the story of two little boys whose progress encouraged their mom to live beyond her known potential to “get the job done”. Their energies were shared in an interesting way. The journey was difficult, necessary and fun beyond words.
Here’s a perfect five star review by Brelyn: I am not a single mother, but the “Charlie” in this book is now an adult (“40” something) and is the owner of an Arthur Murray Dance Studio in Venice, FL. He is a wonderful ballroom dance instructor (I am taking lessons from him and can testify that he has the patience of Job) and when I found out that his mother had written a book about him, I had to read it to find out how she raised him because he is also one of the most charismatic, interesting, funny, and down to earth men I’ve ever met and I wanted to know how she instilled her values in him. A most remarkable story!
